Thank you to all Tesco staff

Thank you to all Tesco staff for making our Charity of the Year partnership such an incredible success.  You’ve raised a truly staggering £11.85 million and counting for Cancer Research UK.  This is the most Tesco has ever raised for a charity in a single year and it’s the biggest 12 month partnership the UK has ever seen.

Don't forget to send in your money

It won’t be long before we hit the £12 million milestone, help us by sending your money in as soon as possible:

  • Stores: All the money you raised must be processed by the Cash Office.  And Express stores can now also bank their money through the tills using the ‘Local Charity line’
  • Distribution centres and Offices: If you need to request a paying-in book please call 0871 641 2201 or email and explain you work for Tesco
  • Sponsorship forms and cheques made payable to Cancer Research UK: Please send these to us, so we can claim gift aid.  The address to use is:

And don’t forget the Tesco Charity Trust will top up your total amount raised by 20%.


How your support helps

The £11.85 million raised will help us to beat cancer through early diagnosis and detection.  It has helped fund 33 cutting-edge research projects across the UK, as well as awareness activities that aim to reduce people’s anxiety about cancer and encourage them to visit the doctor if they notice anything unusual.  The awareness and funds raised will change the odds for people surviving cancer in the UK and will help keep families together for longer – now and for generations to come.


Still so much more to do

Whether you’re fundraising as a team or going solo, volunteering to collect donations at your store, or making an individual donation, set a new challenge for 2013.  For fundraising ideas and support please call 0871 641 2201 or email and explain you work for Tesco.
